logo_baeume_fuer_menschen_rTo plant trees means to preserve our future

Our aim is to prevent the destruction of forests, which are a resource and fundament for human life on earth, by research for renewable energies, education and social projects. For almost 20 years we have been fighting for the preservation of Africa’s dry broadleaf forests, protecting the climate and securing an important livelihood of the population.

We do not just plant a tree – we make climate forest for the future of all people including our children. You want to participate? Plant and foster a tree with us in Africa and support our social project, the Johannis-Kindergarten in Namibia at the same time.

With their social projects, the environmental organization Bäume für Menschen – Trees for the World® help people & nature.

Offer a real peace of nature!

You can directly support ecology and conservation of nature by planting new forests fostering a tree! This fostering breathes new life into devastated forests.

In fact, you do not only support ecology and the preservation of biodiversity, but you also help filtering CO2 out of the atmosphere and protecting our climate.

Our foster tree concept is a fancy gift idea which is going to be remembered a whole lifetime. No matter if it is for Christmas, a birthday, a baptism, a birth or just without specific reason: a real piece of nature is a very good idea for a gift.

Forests are the green heart of our planet which
has to be conserved at any cost.

Our global projects protect trees, that are a source of life for all of us, the climate and many animal and plant species. We create jobs, apprenticeship training positions and school opportunities. Help us!

What is so important about the arboretum in Namibia?

The arboretum in Namibia is a collection of indigenous woods in danger of extinction. Many of the rare trees, shrubs and plants are in real danger, and with our projects, we try to conserve them for future generations. Those who visit our arboretum can study the diversity of a formerly thick dry broadleaf forest on a nature trail. Especially in times of climate change our forests are an important fundament for the biodiversity and a healthy environment. They guarantee clean phreatic water and quality soil, are home to many animals and plants, they are a carbon dioxide sink essential for survival and they represent the livelihood for the local rural population.
